Cropping Daze Retreat

Can I come by myself, or do I have to be with a group?
We welcome singles as well as groups.  If you come by yourself, you will leave with new friends.

Q. Can I come crop just for the day?
A. Currently we only offer weekend packages, but keep an eye on our website for upcoming events, we may offer them in the future.
Q. Is the house and cropping area air conditioned?

Q. Is there smoking allowed?
A. Cropping Daze is a smoke free environment.  However, we do have smoking areas outside the home where you can sit quietly on the deck and enjoy nature.
Q. Are the bedrooms shared?
A. Yes, bedrooms are shared, but each guest will have her own bed.  We try to place guests with people they know whenever possible, but on rare occasions guests may have to share a room with other guests they do not know. We make every effort to prevent this from happening, but sometimes we have no other option. We do let guests know well in advance if they will have to share a room with others and will allow them to switch to another weekend.

A. You will have unlimited use of the cropping area from the time you arrive at 5 p.m. Friday until you leave at noon on Sunday.  You will be pampered with delicious meals and treats from Friday dinner through breakfast on Sunday.  Fresh linens, showers, and comfy beds in attractively decorated bedrooms will enhance your enjoyment.  Complimentary bottle-dispensed spring water, coffee, diet and regular soda, and snacks are at your disposal.  Your hostesses for the weekend will be at your command.
